Thanks to Depend for sponsoring today’s discussion on Drop Your Pants for Underawareness Protection.
I am approaching the big 4-0 next year, and during my most recent physical, my doctor and I had some very frank discussions. We talked about what changes I can expect in certain areas, what immunizations I need to update (Tetanus!), and what preventative tests I need to have run. Because I have some chronic medical conditions, including an auto-immune disorder, I have a few tests run quarterly, take medications daily, and regular visits to make sure everything is on track. I am lucky that I have a good rapport with my physicians, that hasn’t always been the case. With the ladies I see, they are not hesitant to ask point blank if I am having any issues with things such as incontinence. They are very aware of my medical history, and know that I’ve delivered three babies, so it’s an issue that can and will affect many women with my background. I am fortunate that this isn’t a major issue for me personally on an ongoing basis, but I do keep a supply of items on hand because when I’m dealing with a few other issues, it can cause minor light bladder leakage (LBL).
It’s not uncommon for women of child bearing age (and older) who have had children to encounter some LBL from time to time. Maybe you sneeze or laugh too hard, or need to make sure you’re aware of where accessible restrooms are every time you go somewhere because when you need to go, YOU NEED TO GO. When you are out to dinner, or just having laughs with girlfriends, you don’t want to be worried about LBL. Let Depend take away your LBL worries so you can live in the moment and fully engaged with your loved ones!

If you are male or female and dealing with LBL, I encourage you to visit your doctor and have a discussion with them. You need to determine what the cause of the issue is. It could be very minor, and wearing Depend Underwear on occasion might be your perfect solution. If it’s something else, together you can discuss the best course of treatment, and use Depend Underwear while treating the issue to keep you dry and odor free.
